Comments on: Sun Valley: Execs join reporters in bar exile http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/07/13/sun-valley-execs-join-reporters-in-bar-exile/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Robert MacMillan http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/07/13/sun-valley-execs-join-reporters-in-bar-exile/#comment-361360 Mon, 13 Jul 2009 21:04:37 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=18087#comment-361360 Tom, I think you’re completely misinformed, and I mean that in a nice way. I attended as press. We are not invited, but the executives desire our presence. It’s a complicated dance, the way we work that out.And anyway, no one, including the media, wants the event turned into a chaotic circus. To that end, I specifically learned how to eat with a knife and fork and wore pants for the very first time in my life in order to attend this conference. The executives told me I ate well, but would I please stop leering at their wives. I thought that was just being polite. Next year!

Univited means that they are not wanted there…if they were wanted, they would have gotten a nice shiny invite. The media has no one to blame but themselves for the discontent over them. Like Don said journalism is dying. This is evident in the way journalists are viewed and treated these days. Sadly there are no more Walter Cronkites.

This is one of those. The comment is..”Who gives a damn?” The CEO’s are overpaid and the news folks write about whatever is going on that day regardless of its worthiness!! Journalism is dying at an alarming rate.

Whether Republicans or Democrats, both politicians and corporate leaders want the same thing – control to enrich themselves. CIT is another example. A financial services firm that provides financing for small business. They were successful in providing the services that large companies cannot and will not provide – like brokers and small banks provided. However, the large banks are taking the opportunity to grab every profitable financial business activity that they can under the guise of a financial meltdown. Our government is helping the process thinking they are preventing future problems. In reality, they are assisting in the dismantling of the Amewrican dream. Small business provides the most growth, the most jobs and the most liberty to Americans. Large business has difficulty growing, destroys value by undercutting competition, and cuts jobs. Do we really need a handful of huge banks who don’t return phone calls, don’t provide reasonable loans to small business, and are too big to be successful? Ask yourself those questions once in awhile.

Hooray for the politically correct/appease everyone movement!
